Description: The banderas monumentales (Spanish for "monumental flags") are a set of monuments located throughout Mexico. The main feature of these monuments is a giant Mexican flag flying off a 50 meter-high flagpole. They are part of a program started in 1999 under President Ernesto Zedillo that is currently administered by the Secretariat of National Defense (Secretaría de la Defensa Nacional). The size of the flag was 14.3 by 25 meters and it was flown on a pole that measured 50 meters high. In the time after the decree was issued, many more banderas monumentales have been installed throughout the country in various sizes. Many of the locations were chosen due to significant events in Mexican history that occurred there.
